Table This Discussion

Bring an ornately rustic touch to your home with this intriguing side table, beautifully crafted from leftover Wisconsin barn wood and pieces of scrolling picture frames. Highlighted by the juxtaposition between warmly weathered wood and gold-finished Baroque trim, this eye-catching design offers an unexpected pedestal for potted plants, framed photos, or your nighttime reads. Handmade in Chicago.

John Preus

John Preus' work as a designer, builder, and artist explores the complex relationship between humans and the objects they surround themselves with, specifically the transfer of value between things and humans. Preus imagines his work as "articulating social relations in material form." He has roughly 16 years of building and designing experience including a 2-year apprenticeship with award-winning furniture-maker John Nesset, and stints in various cabinet shops and carpentry crews. He developed and managed the fabrication shop for Chicago artist Theaster Gates, from 2011 to 2013, producing a series of successful exhibitions and spaces, most notably the Dorchester Projects, 12 Ballads for Huguenot House in Kassel, Germany for Documenta 13, and An Epitaph for Civil Rights and Other Domesticated Structures, at Kavi Gupta gallery in Chicago.
